  • Need recipe using oven cooking bags

    I want to make some chicken breasts in those Reynolds oven cooking bags tommorrow but don't really have any good recipes. Would anyone have one they would like to share?

    Why not try doing some chicken with vegetables and some seasoning.  I would think that you could do anything in the cooking bags but it has been a long time since I used them.

     I have not used the oven bags in a long time either. Reynolds has quite a few recipes. This one sounded good to me.

    Thank you both for your replies. I did search at the reynolds site for a recipe first and did not really see anything I wanted to try. I want something low in fat and sodium, so I believe the chicken broth would make it high in sodium, but the recipe does look good.

    I always cook my turkeys in Reynolds bags.  They stay nice and moist that way.  You could buy the regular size bags and cook a stuffed turkey breast or some stuffed chicken breasts.  I just put some flour in the bag and then add a large stalk of celery, a peeled onion and a carrot stick.  This adds a lot of flavor to the meat and even the stuffing.  Getting the cooked juices out to make gravy can get interesting, but if you cut off a corner of the bag, it pours a little better into a saucepan.  [:)

    Hope some other posters have some good T&T ideas.  I've also looked at the Reynolds recipes that come with the bags but never found anything that jumped off the page for me to try.

    I always cook my turkey or turkey breast, and even whole chicken in oven bags, but that is all I use them for. Since that comes out so well, I wanted to try using the bags with chicken breasts. I am going to try to figure something out before the day is up today. If it comes out well I will post what I did, if it doesn't, well, I won't be posting any failures, ha.

    If you're concerned about the sodium level in the chicken broth, you could either make your own or buy the low-sodium version.
